If you have not yet read every page, dropdown and link at USCGA.edu, I recommend it. Most answers are there.

There are no plebes at USCGA.

All start as first-year, no skipping to next class. One of the purposes of the prep year is to prepare candidates to handle the academics of the first year at USCGA.

No need to be sorry for being in the learning stages of this process - it's great you are asking questions and figuring things out! :thumb:
